View Full Version : Cloaca question

Cloaca question

04-26-2013, 03:13 AM
Hi guys - I haven't posted in a while, things have been great for my snake so far but I noticed something after Anasni's shed that made me want to post this question. Is it normal after a shed or when a little stressed out to have the cloaco opening a little red and seems like it's 'puffing' up/inflamed a little -- or is this a sign of infection? This is my first reptile so just wanna check with you fine people -- a vet would just tell me to bring it in and I don't wanna spend 40 bucks for an office visit just to be told its normal.. plus the stress of the vet trip.. Otherwise my king is almost 2.5 feet.. need to do a full measure/weight check when he's not so stressed. (if it makes a difference I don't really know if it's male or female yet)

May have just been me being a little paranoid and an incomplete shed. I noticed pretty much from the colaca down the skin hadn't come off, got it wet with a warm wash cloth and came out.
